Yesterday, during his regular weekly spot on ESPN Radio 1050, Billy Wagner said the following,
“I feel good and I am ready to go. I can’t wait to join my teammates and contribute.”
He also added…
“I know what my job is and I know what I’m best suited to do, but we’re trying to get into the playoffs and I want Jerry to know I will pitch in any role necessary even if it means not being the closer.”
Talk about a great “team first” attitude. Don’t worry about it though Billy…

Hey… I’m just saying…
